The Real Jouissance of Uncountable Numbers: The Philosophy of Science within Lacanian Psychoanalysis

Raul Moncayo and Magdalena Romanowicz

We are joined this evening by Raul Moncayo and Magdalena Romanowicz, who will discuss their forthcoming publication, ‘The Real Jouissance of Uncountable Numbers: The Philosophy of Science within Lacanian Psychoanalysis’ (Karnac Books, 2014).

“Ludwig Wittgenstein famously said “To learn from Freud, you have to be critical”. Much the same can be said of Jacques Lacan’s oeuvre. This wonderful volume provides a rigorous scaffolding to help us penetrate Lacanian density. Using mathematics and clinical experience as a basis, the authors lead us through Lacan’s antisystemic tradition. Their efforts enable us to approach one of the most influential French thinkers of the last century. Our efforts will be rewarded by reaching a deeper understanding of how Lacan manages to radically critique reductionism in psychiatry while expanding the non-reductionist revolution of Freud and psychoanalysis” Professor Hans Steiner.
